Pest Issues To Be Aware Of When House Hunting

Searching for the right home can be challenging–especially in this competitive real estate market! Potential home buyers need to be aware of common pest issues as they tour new houses. Continue reading to uncover which pest issues you should keep an eye out for when house hunting.


When buying a home, the last thing you want to deal with is probably a rodent problem. To prevent this from happening to you, take a good look at the attic for signs of a rodent infestation. Since attics are usually dark and uninhabited, it makes them the perfect place for rodents to hide. 


Termites are wood-destroying insects that can threaten the structural integrity of a house. During a house tour, remember to inspect any wood structures in the home for gnaw marks. It is imperative for home buyers to realize that repairing termite damage can be costly.


Potential home buyers should also go outside to check the rest of the property for pest issues. In particular, look out for nests in trees. After all, thousands of wasps can reside in one nest!
